BREAKING Lufthansa announces a reduction of its fleet by 150 planes


With demand set to be lower than expected through winter as the coronavirus pandemic continues to severely curtail travel, Lufthansa said it now plans to reduce its fleet by 150 planes by 2025.

It had previously estimated it would have to scrap 100 aircraft in response to the unprecedented crisis in the aviation sector.

As part of its fleet reduction, the airline said it has been forced to put its eight remaining A380s as well as 10 A340-600s into deep storage.

Six A380s had already been taken out of service earlier this year.
